    Dynamic- Thanks for the in depth pics! I'm new to all this and recently acquired a lid (my 1st purchase) off the bay for a whopping $20. Figured even if it was junk it would be a great test piece. Through my research, I think it's a DP 96 that some one started on. They filled in the print on the back and primed it grey, so I'm not sure. I have been tormented by which way to paint, topical or layered and your pics and posts have given me the confidence to do attempt a layered application. Keep up the great work! You're an inspiration for us newbies!

    Dechels - Welcome to TDH! Dynamic will be a great resource for you and your paint-up, as will many other talented individuals here. He (Dynamic) has really established himself as an AWESOME painter in the past several months.

    Good luck with your first lid. If you catch the bug (as we all have) I'm sure there will be MANY MORE in your future!!

    OBrother- I'm sure I will. It seems like I scourer the boards non stop in my spare time, or not so spare ... I'm finally ready to get my feet wet on a lid. Can anyone here point me in the right direction for the masking fluid? I went to Hobby Lobby at lunch and wasn't quite sure what I'm looking for. I think I saw that someone used tooth paste? Does this work?

    Hey Dechels-thanks so much for your very kind words! Doesnt hurt to have deadland in your backyard as he has been a phenominal resource. For the detail your seeking i would go for "liquid frisket" brand as i have tried it all including mustard. Used toothpaste on my lil guys armor which was ok but the fluid is much better for that level of detail. Keep me posted as i look forward to your paint up!

    Thanks for the lead! I saw the "liquid frisket" and wasn't sure that was correct. I'll take pics of my progress and post them as soon as my "newbie" status is lifted! Thanks for the help. Curious what you used/ color for your visor?

    Amazing job man, I'm just about done with my first ever painting job on a DP97, I know is a ****** helmet but think is the best way to practice your painting, specially when you have never done anything like this in your life, is nice to see it come alive...

    Have a couple of rookie questions too:

    1. How much do you wait after the masking dries to apply the next layer?

    2.Do you help the drying process of the paint (hair dryer) or just let it dry by itself?

    I realized 3 things about painting.... 1. I have no patience for letting stuff dry. 2. Not letting it dry properly can mess the masking.... and 3 I need to learn to use a stencil to have a more accurate damage design....

    Keep up the great job and keep posting pics...

    Hey Pete- Thanks buddy. Yes 1. ENORMOUS amount of patience 2. Ive painted 45min to an hour after masking, but no less. 3. At deadlands discression I wait a full 24 hours prior to moving forward w/ stenciling. Hope this helps as I definatley understand the learning curve...Take your time and study the heck out of the reference pics. I look forward to seeing your progress.

    Another for pistolpete if I may, for the stencils/accurate damage design- carbon paper works great for tracing your stencils onto the helmet.

    Dude, now that I can see those pics of yours on a bigger screen instead of on my phone all I have to say is WOW. That lid is looking fantastic and you should be proud, and just wait until you lay that green layer down and start removing the masking fluid from the cat scratch. I will tell you right now it is going to blow your mind. As always bro keep up the good work and I cannot wait to see this bad boy in person.
